Vaastu Purush is considered as a deity in the Indian scriptures who is the god of any house. Since ages ago, there were many changes in the human creation of Vastu in home and buildings, Vastu Shastra has been changed accordingly. Many of the current architectural theory does not match with ancient architecture, so humans are still not satisfied with Vaastu knowledge, as by an example, according to ancient Indian Vastu Shastra, sewerage (toilet) should not be in the home, and it should be outside of the home. But in present, it is recommended in South-West (Neshrtiya Kon) or in the South. Indeed, Pitar and Yam are considered deities of South-West and south direction, and then the place for sewerage or toilet in these directions are inappropriate. At the present time, it is not synonymous.
